Kim Slate

Even from a young age growing up in Eastern Washington, Kim Slate had a fascination with the creation of images and the power they had to capture the imagination and elicit emotion. The encouragement of her interests and talents led her to study animation where the power of images are amplified by story. After graduation, she applied her training to several feature films, most recently the award winning film Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio. In her sculptures and paintings she has honed a unique perspective, depicting the mysterious and sometimes mischievous adventures of ordinary and exotic creatures. Each piece suggests a narrative, her charming characters caught in some act of scheming, play, or discovery. Kim resides in Portland Oregon where she can be found running its miles of forest trails or traveling with her husband and three year old son.
